§ Mr. David Nicholson
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what information he has about non-Government organisations which are providing development assistance to Vietnam, and the amounts of assistance in each case.
§ Mrs. Chalker
A number of British NGOs are active in Vietnam. They are independent agencies and receive no Government funding for their programmes there. Consequently, the Government do not maintain records of their activities in Vietnam. The agencies would no doubt be willing to make this information available to the hon. Member.
